Dave Metcalfe Career Summary

Died in a road accident on 17th December 1992, moments after giving the WRC debut of the Astra Mk3 and getting a full works contract. The accident wasn't even his fault, someone took his right of way. The crash actually happened driving a new Vauxhall Calibra 4x4 Turbo gN Rally car. But it was only a shake down, function test, and as said even the police confirmed the crash was 100% the fault of the other driver.Huge waste of a talent. Before this chance, Dave spent driving a Vauxhall Nova as a junior team member to an army of Astra Mk2. Just check Youtube for Metcalfe Nova and you will find the most spectacular footage.
